Aunt Mildred's Noodle Kugel 1/4 c Butter 8 oz Noodles, uncooked 3 Eggs, beaten 4 oz Cottage cheese 2 c Milk 1/3 c Sugar 1 1/2 t Vanilla extract 12 oz Pineapple, crushed, with juice Cornflake crumbs, to top Melt butter in a 9x13 pan. Add noodles. Combine remaining ingredients, except crumbs, spread evenly over noodles. Top with crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees F. for about an hour. NOTES: * Noodle kugel using uncooked noodles -- This recipe is interesting because you don't cook the noodles first. Serves 6. * This recipe is very simple, but it does taste a little pastier than recipes that require the noodles to be cooked first. It also comes out very flat -- most of the kugel recipes I've made in the past use twice as many noodles in the same size pan.

Serve hot with vanilla ice cream (spoon extra sauce over ice cream). NOTES: * A quick substitute for apple pie. * Grind the cinnamon stick and allspice berries with a coffee grinder; makes interesting coffee afterward.

Baklava 1 Batch DOUGH 1 lb Strudel dough (or fillo leaves) 1 lb Butter, unsalted, well-melted (salted butter (or margarine) is not acceptable) ------FILLING-----1 lb Walnut meat, chopped medium-fine 1/4 c Sugar 1 t Vanilla (or use vanilla sugar) SYRUP 4 c Sugar 2 c Water 1 t Lemon juice Heat oven to 300 degrees F. to 325 degrees F. MAKE THE SYRUP: Boil the water and sugar for 15 minutes. Add lemon juice, boil 10 more minutes, set aside to cool. MAKE THE FILLING: Mix all ingredients well. I prefer the walnuts fairly coarse; some people like them quite fine. BUILD THE BAKLAVA: Cut the dough with scissors to the size of the tray. Handle the dough very carefully; do not press hard on it at any time. Cover with wax paper and damp towel. Take out one sheet of dough at a time and place it in the pan. Brush the dough with melted butter between each layer. Continue until you have about 12 sheets buttered. Small and broken pieces of dough can be used in the center, but there must be butter between every two layers. Spread walnut filling across the tray. Put on a sheet of dough, brush on butter and continue until all the dough is used up. Cut into diamond shapes: cut into quarters with cuts parallel to the long axis, then cut diagonally across. Don't press hard! Bake for about 1 1/2 hour, until golden brown. Be careful not to burn the bottom or the walnuts, especially with a glass pan.

400 Classic Dessert Recipes Let cool on rack for 5 minutes. Add syrup which should have cooled to room temperature. Let cool for at least two hours before eating. NOTES: * An incredibly sweet and wonderful Balkan dessert -- Baklava is claimed by almost every Balkan state as its own invention; most people in the United States first encounter it in Greek restaurants. If the truth were known, it's probably the Turkish who invented it, as is the case for many other "typically Greek" dishes. This recipe comes from my Bulgarian grandmother and follows Bulgarian tradition, in that the filling is very simple. Makes two small pans. * Probably the hardest thing about this recipe is waiting those last two hours! * Depending on where you go, you'll hear the name of this dish pronounced different ways. I pronounce the name with all /ah/ sounds, with accents of equal intensity on both the first and third syllable. The second syllable is quite faint. Greek-speaking persons typically put a heavy accent on the second syllable. * Many variations on the filling are to be found. A simple one was mentioned above, regarding the coarseness of grind of the walnuts in the filling. They may even be ground. Spices such as chopped cloves or cinnamon may be added and the filling may be included in several layers instead of just one. * A large (14 x 10 inch) pan is almost too big to handle. I typically make this recipe in two 7 3/4 x 11 inch pans, which is just about the size of a half sheet of the dough I buy. By the way, if you can make your own strudel dough, it will be even better... but much more effort. * It is best to have a partner help you prepare the pans. One person handles the dough and places it in the pan, while the other applies the butter. It is very important that sufficient butter be placed between layers so that each layer gets flaky, rather than having them stick together. Pay particular attention to the edges and corners. * In case you haven't noticed, this is very sweet stuff. It goes great with a fine cup of coffee, espresso, or Turkish coffee, even with sugar. Two pieces will probably fill anyone up; it refrigerates and freezes quite well. This recipe requires a lot of effort, but it's well worth it.

Berry Cobbler 1/2 c Sugar (for sprinkling) 4 c Berries (fresh or frozen) 1 c Sugar (for the batter) 1 c Flour, all-purpose 1 1/2 t Baking powder 1/2 t Salt 1/2 c Milk 1/4 c Butter (softened) Nutmeg Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Sprinkle about 1/2 cup of sugar on the berries and place them in the bottom of a 2-quart baking dish. Combine the remaining dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder and salt). Add the milk and softened butter and beat well. Spoon the batter over the berries. Sprinkle some nutmeg on top. Bake for about 45 minutes. NOTES: * You can use pretty well any type of berry for the base. A favourite of mine is a combination of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. * The base of this turns out to be a bit thin and liquidy. If you strain the juice from the fruit, add a couple of tablespoons of flour to the juice, and then pour the juice over the fruit in the baking dish, the base will be semi-firm. * You do not need to sprinkle the full 1/2 cup of sugar on the berries; with sweeter berries, much less will often suffice. * If you would like a sweeter, candy-like batter, try adding more sugar to the batter. I wouldn't recommend putting more than about 1 1/4 cups of sugar into the batter, though, the crust of the batter will be very candy-like, but the center of the batter will not properly bake if you do.

Busy Day Cobbler 1/4 c Butter (or margarine, -if you must) 1/2 c Sugar 2/3 c Milk 1 c Flour 2 t Baking powder 13 oz Tart cherries (one normal U.S. can) 2 T Sugar (to sweeten and thicken; use less or more as needed) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Drain cherries, saving liquid. Cream butter and sugar together. Alternately add in milk and sifted dry ingredients. Pour into a buttered and floured casserole dish. Top evenly with cherries. Sprinkle sugar on top and cover with saved liquid/juice. Bake 45-50 minutes. The batter will expand and surround the cherries so they're evenly mixed throughout the cobbler. The juice will congeal to fruity and pudding-like. Serve warm topped with cream, milk or ice cream. (I prefer milk). If any is left, it's good cold, too. NOTES: * As the name implies, this is a very quick recipe to make. Depending on how soft the butter is to start with, or whether or if you use a food processor (I don't, but it should work) this recipe takes only 5 to 10 minutes to mix. * You can use any unsweetened canned fruit for this recipe. You can also use frozen fruit, by thawing it before adding to the pan. Berries or peaches are standard substitutes. Yesterday I made one with crushed pineapple. I used brown, rather than white sugar atop the fruit. It tasted very much like pineapple upside down cake (though the appearance was a bit different).

Add the egg and vanilla and beat until you get a uniform mixture. Mix the flour and baking powder and gradually blend them into the mixture. When you're done, you should have a rather sticky dough. Shape the dough into balls, about 1 inch in diameter. Roll them in sugar and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet, leaving about an inch of space between cookies, so that they don't stick together when they expand. Bake in preheated oven at 350 degrees F. for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, let them cool for a while, and start eating right away.

Quickly fold 1/4 of the chocolate mixture into the beaten whites, then fold the whites into the chocolate. Fill the crust with the filling and refrigerate several hours. If you like may add Bailey's Irish Cream to the filling to flavor and whip cream with a tiny bit of sugar and some Frangelico liqueur. Amaretto for the whipping cream is also nice. It's just a decadent final touch to an already-decadent dessert.

Beat in the eggs, salt and flavorings. Stir in the flour until blended. Chill in the refrigerator for an hour or two. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Roll out on a floured surface to a thickness of about 1/8 to 1/4 inch. Cut with the cookie cutters of your choice (this was always a cause for argument in our family). Bake on ungreased cookie sheets until tan around the edges, about 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool. Make the frosting by beating together the sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Divide and color each portion. Frost the cookies. NOTES: * Frosted cookie-cutter cookies -- My mom got this recipe many years ago in a cookbook that came in installments, so it didn't have a name on the binder and I don't know what it was called. She had us (the kids) make these cookies every year. 2-4 dozen. * These cookies are about the only ones I know that taste better cooked and cold than as raw dough. * Cinnamon red hots make good eyes for animals or Santas.

Add the flour and egg yolk and mix well. Add the cream cheese and mix well. Roll into balls about 5/8 inch diameter. Place them on an ungreased cookie sheet (the cookies don't grow when baked, so they can be somewhat close together). Then press your thumb into each to flatten it and make an indentation to hold some jam. Fill it with jam. Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 to 20 minutes. You can use any flavor jam you like. The jam is the only part of the cookie that has any texture, so I prefer using it to jelly. Don't eat the cookies straight from the oven, or you'll probably burn your tongue. The jam stays hotter much longer than the cookie. NOTES: Simple filled butter cookies with cream cheese. 3-4 dozen.

Ernest Hemingway Key Lime Pie Some might wonder the connection between Key Lime Pie and Ernest Hemingway, but he hung out a lot, a regular squatter of sorts, at Papa John's Bar, Key West Florida. There are not too many recipes attributed to him, and then I recently ran across this one for Key Lime Pie. The intro to the recipe attributes that Hemingway used to live at 1599 Bathurst Street in Toronto, Canada. He was working as a young journalist then for the Toronto Star. He eventually moved to Florida, then Cuba, and developed a fond appetite for white rum, seafood and Key West Lime Pie. He hung out quite a bit with such randy's as Steven Boyd. Papa John's is quite a museum in itself and sports newspaper articles and pictures of Papa and his cronies (including Boyd). So here is Papa's Key Lime Pie. I do believe this recipe was printed at one time in the Toronto Star. 1 cup sugar 250 ml 1/4 cup white flour 50 ml 3 TBS cornstarch 40 ml 2 cups spring water 500 ml 3 egg yolks 3 1 TBS margarine 15 ml 1/4 cup fresh lime juice 50 ml grated rind of 1 lime one baked pie shell meringue pie topping Combine sugar, flour, cornstarch in top of double boiler and gradually stir in water. Cook over medium heat, whisking until thickened. Beat egg yolks and gradually stir some of cooked mixture into beaten egg yolks. Return this mixture to double boiler and cook and whisk another 3 minutes. Stir in margarine, lime juice and rind. Cook to lukewarm. Pour into your favorite baked shell and cool thoroughly. Top with meringue and brown under broiler, or your favorite whipped cream topping. For you pie shell, why not add a small amount of sugar and some finely crushed macadamia nuts? Takes it a cut above. (And I always use more lime juice--its a matter of taste. I like it tart and cut back on the sugar.)

I find it easiest to mix the flour and sugar together dry, add the milk to the starter, and then slowly add the flour and sugar to the liquid. The starter should never be beaten with a blender or refrigerated. Pour the mixture into a large bowl, cover with cling-film or a damp towel, and leave to brew. Day 2: Thoroughly mix the sourdough, then leave to brew again. Day 5: As day 1 Day 6: As day 2 Day 10: Print off three copies of this recipe. Here now is why this is called a friendship cake.

Key Lime Pie 3 Eggs 14 oz Condensed milk (one standard can) 4 oz Key Lime juice Sugar 1 Graham cracker pie crust Separate the eggs. You'll be whipping the whites, so put them in a large enough bowl. Combine the egg yolks, the condensed milk and the juice, and stir until thoroughly combined. The acidity of the juice thickens the milk and eggs into a custard. Add a pinch of sugar to the egg whites, and beat them until stiff but not dry. Spoon the custard into the pie crust and even it out. Spoon the beaten egg whites on top of the custard and even it out so it looks pretty. Chill before serving. If you like, run the pie under a hot broiler for a minute until the egg whites are slightly browned. (This is primarily for appearance, it doesn't affect the flavor much.)

Key Lime Pie "Original" 1 ea Unflavored gelatin 1/4 c Water 2/3 c Sugar; divided 1/2 c Key lime juice 1/4 t Salt 2 t Grated lime rind 4 ea Eggs; separated 9" ea baked pastry shell I got this recipe from a "Cracker," and it will dispute the previous statement that all will agree on how to make the best Key Lime Pie. My tree froze, but came back, so we've enjoyed this recipe a lot this year. Mix togethe gelatin, 1/3 c sugar and salt in saucepan. Combine slightly beaten egg yolks, water & lime juice. Add to gelatin mixture. Place over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin dissolves, about 6 min. Remove from heat and add rind. Cool. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Gradually add remaining 1/3 c sugar and beat until stiff. Fold in gelatin mixture. Turn into pastry shell and chill until firm. Garnish with whipped cream and lime slices if desired. Note: To make lime chiffon cream pie, fold in 1/2 c heavy cream, whipped before turning into pastry shell. This is a much lighter pie than the one using sweetened consensed milk, and I think it has a more of the flavor of Key limes.

Kourabiedes 30 Pieces 2 c Butter, unsalted 1 c Sugar, powdered 3 Egg yolks 3 T Brandy 2 t Vanilla extract 6 c Flour 1/2 c Almonds (blanched), chopped 1 lb Sugar, powdered (one package) Beat the butter with the sugar until it becomes fluffy. Add the egg yolks one by one, beating continuously. Add the brandy and vanilla. Blend in the almonds and the flour, a cup at a time. Use enough flour to get a firm dough (it may take a bit more or less than the amount mentioned in the ingredients list). Use your hands to do the mixing, as an electric mixer will be useless after the first two or three cups of flour have been added. Place the dough in the refrigerator for at least one hour. Shape the dough into balls, about one inch in diameter, flatten them and place on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven. Roll each cookie (while it is still hot) in the powdered sugar and put it back on the cookie sheet. Repeat this step once more, so that you get a thicker coating. Place the coated cookies on a platter, liberally sprinkling each layer and the bottom of the platter with powdered sugar. When you are done, there shouldn't be any sugar left. Let them cool and they are ready to eat!

Add the enough of the remaining flour, a cup at a time, until you get a rather firm dough (you may need a bit more or less than the amount mentioned in the ingredients list). Use your hands to do the mixing, as an electric mixer will be useless after the first two or three C of flour have been added. Roll the dough into cylinders, about two inches long and one inch in diameter, flatten them with your hands, and place them on cookie sheets greased with a little olive oil. Bake at 350 degrees F. for half an hour. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for about half an hour. Make the syrup: mix the sugar, honey and water, and bring them to a boil. Cook on low heat for three minutes and skim off the foam that forms on top. Pour the hot syrup over the cookies, sprinkle them with the chopped walnuts and let them soak overnight.

Original Key Lime Pie 1 ea Unflavored gelatin 1/4 c Water 2/3 c Sugar; divided 1/2 c Key lime juice 1/4 t Salt 2 t Grated lime rind 4 ea Eggs; separated 1 x 9" baked pastry shell I got this recipe from a "Cracker," and it will dispute the previous statement that all will agree on how to make the best Key Lime Pie. My tree froze, but came back, so we've enjoyed this recipe a lot this year. Mix together gelatin, 1/3 c sugar and salt in saucepan. Combine slightly beaten egg yolks, water & lime juice. Add to gelatin mixture. Place over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin dissolves, about 6 min. Remove from heat and add rind. Cool. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Gradually add remaining 1/3 c sugar and beat until stiff. Fold in gelatin mixture. Turn into pastry shell and chill until firm. Garnish with whipped cream and lime slices if desired. Note: To make lime chiffon cream pie, fold in 1/2 c heavy cream, whipped before turning into pastry shell. This is a much lighter pie than the one using sweetened condensed milk, and I think it has a more of the flavor of Key limes.

Add cold evaporated milk to Dream Whip (do not add vanilla). Sprinkle in 24 pkg. Equal. Mix and beat according to directions. Beat egg yolks slightly, and gradually stir in lemon juice. Gradually fold in the whipped Dream Whip. Spread in pie crust. Turn on broiler so it will get hot. Beat 3 egg whites frothy (use clean beaters so whites will beat up as fluffy as possible). Add 1 tbs. sugar and beat until blended in. Add another tbs. sugar and 3 Equal pkg. and beat until soft peaks form. Spread meringue over top. Spread meringue to stick to the edges so it won't shrink when you broil it. Put under broiler for 30-60 seconds until meringue is lightly browned. IT DOESN'T TAKE LONG AT ALL AND IS EASY TO BURN. The flavors will blend better if you chill for 5 hours.

Persimmon Pie 1 Unbaked 9-inch pie crust 2 c Persimmon puree 1 tb Flour 1/3 c Honey 1 tb Sorghum 1 ts Cinnamon 1/2 ts Nutmeg 1/8 ts Allspice 3 ea Eggs 1 c Evaporated milk Brush crust with egg white from one of the eggs; set aside. Mix persimmon with flour, honey, sorghum and spices. Beat in eggs and milk. Pour into prepared pie crust. Bake at 400F 40-50 minutes until pie doesn't jiggle when shaken. Cover edges with circle of foil if crust begins to brown too much. Native persimmons are so sweet that they have also been called wild figs or sugar plums. The English word persimmon is said to have come from the Algonquin word pessemin. Like apricots, persimmons contain ample amounts of vitamins A and C. The easiest way to get persimmon pulp is to puree fully ripe persimmons using a food mill or a Chinaman sieve. Aluminum or plastic sieves are best since iron or tin will turn the rosey orange pulp dark. Freeze any you don't use now for use later in winter and spring. When ripe, persimmons are very soft and take on a dusty pale lavender cast. Persimmon pulp can be used in any pumpkin recipe with similar results. It marries well with cinnamon, nutmeg and orange. Since it is not as think as pumpkin, adding a little flour to pie fillings is a good idea.

NOTE: The filling can be made a day in advance and refrigerated. If you've used the praline, you may have extra pumpkin filling; bake it in individual custard cups.

Mix corn syrup or honey with rum or bourbon to thin the syrup. Blend wet mixture into dry ingredients with fork. Mix well. Allow to sit for 1-2 hours. At this point, if you let it sit a couple of hours, you can come back and add another about 1/2 cup of rum or bourbon and let sit again. This process may be repeated a few times to your taste. The last time, the mix should sit a couple of hours so it's not really moist. There's a good midpoint between too moist and too dry where rolling into balls won't be difficult (too wet) or cause crumbling (too dry). Roll into balls, then roll in powered sugar to make a sugar coating. When rolling in powered sugar, the moister they are, the more sugar will be absorbed over time. They may need another roll in the sugar right before serving.

Second Day Apple Squares 2 c White flour, unbleached 2 c Brown sugar, firmly packed 1/2 c Butter (or margarine) 1 c Chopped nuts (optional) 2 t Cinnamon (or less) 1 t Soda 1/2 t Salt 1 c Sour cream (or yogurt) 1 t Vanilla extract 1 Egg 2 c Apples, peeled and finely chopped (about 2 apples) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and margarine. Blend at low speed, until the mixture forms fine crumbs. If you want to include them, stir in the nuts now. Place about 2 3/4 cups of the crumb mixture into an ungreased pan, about 13 x 9 inches. Press down firmly. Add the remaining ingredients (except for the apples) to the remaining crumb mixture. Blend well. Stir the chopped apples into the batter. Spoon the batter evenly over the crumb base in the pan. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30-40 minutes. If you use the larger pan, bake for 25-30 minutes. Cool before cutting. Better yet, let it wait 24 hours before cutting. Store loosely covered. NOTES: * Sugary, moist apple squares -- Try to avoid eating very many of these squares on the day you make them, as they improve immeasurably on the second and third day! This recipe originally came from a Pillsbury bake-off. Makes 12-15 squares.

With the back of a large spoon, rub the jams through a fine seive set over a large bowl. THen beat in it the egg yolks, sour cream, cinnamon, the nuts and their soaking milk. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough into a 12" circle about 1/8" thick. With a pastry brush, coat the bottom and sides of a 9" false bottom tart pan with the softened butter. Gently press the pastry into the bottom and around the sides of the pan, being careful not to stretch it. Roll the pin over the rim of the pan, pressing down hard to trim off excess pastry.

Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie -----PIE CRUST----2 1/4 c Flour 3/4 c Shortening 5 T Milk, cold (can use water) ----PIE FILLING---1 c Sugar 1 lb Rhubarb, cut into 1/2-inch pieces 6 c Strawberries (or less) 6 T Tapioca (tapioca starch preferred, but quick-cooking tapioca is okay, too) Cut the strawberries in half. Place in a bowl with the rhubarb and add the sugar and tapioca. Mix and let sit for at least 15 minutes. Make the pie crust: Cut the shortening and flour together. This can be done with two knives, with a pastry cutter, or with some electric mixers. (I do mine in a Kitchen Aid food processor/mixer.) When the mixture has an even consistency (it should resemble coarse sand), add in the milk (or water). Take about 5/8ths of the dough and roll out on a floured board until it is a little bit larger than a 10-inch pie pan. Put this in the pie pan. (The rest of the dough is for the top of the pie.) Pour the strawberries and rhubarb mixture into the pie crust. Roll out the remainder of the pie crust. Place on top of the pie, crimping the edges of the top and bottom crusts together. Make one or two slits in the top of the crust for steam to escape. Bake 45 to 50 minutes at 400 degrees F. or until Ayrup boils with heavy bubbles that do not burst.

Dip a glass in dough and wipe excess off. Then dip the glass in sugar and flatten a cookie. Repeat the dip-in-sugar flatten-cookie sequence until all are done. The cookies won't spread in baking, so you can easily judge how far apart to put them (you want room to cook, but not to grow). If you find that the dough is getting too soft to flatten easily, put it in the refrigerator between batches. Bake for about 5-6 minutes, until the edges are JUST beginning to turn golden brown.

Add the vanilla sugar (see below if you don't know what vanilla sugar is.) Whip the cream in the machine. If it's a food processor, leave the pushing device out; if a blender, remove the center of the lid, or just cover the top of the jar with your hand. The trick is to allow lots of air into the cream. Run the machine for no more than five seconds at a time, to avoid making butter. The cream is done when it holds a peak.

Divide the dough into four parts, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill for several hours. Mix together the brown sugar, walnuts and cinnamon. Roll each dough section on a floured surface until about 1/8 inch thick. Spread about 1/4 of the sugar/walnut/cinnamon mixture over each rolled dough section. Cut the dough into pie-shaped wedges and roll, beginning at the wide end. Place cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter (about 2 T should be enough). Bake for about 20 minutes at 375 degrees F. If you remove the cookies from the oven before they turn brown, the dough will be softer and flakier. If you remove them after they have browned slightly, the dough will be crisper. Remove cookies from cookie sheet before they have cooled completely, or else they stick to the cookie sheet.

Whistle Stop's Sugar Cream Pie 1 1/2 c Brown sugar (do not pack) 6 tb All purpose flour 1 c Half and half 1 c Heavy whipping cream pn Salt 1 ts Vanilla Butter Cinnamon Mix together brown sugar and flour and put in bottom of an unbaked deep dish pie shell. Then mix together Half and half, whipping cream, salt, and vanilla. Slowly pour this mixture over the top of the brown sugar mixture. DO NOT STIR!!!!! Dot with slices of butter and sprinkle with cinnamon. Bake 10 minutes at 450 degrees. Reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake for 50 minutes. Serve slices of pie slightly warm. **I have found that baking the pie in a glass pie dish has better results then using the pie shell already in a aluminum pan. The aluminum ready pie crust seems to over cook the brown sugar and make it hard instead of a gelatin type substance. Also Vanilla ice cream is a great accompaniment to the pie. Plus it will help ease some of the kick from the richness of the pie.
